I don’t know about you, but I want to show my daughter what to do, how to act and what I believe to be important.
Having Audrey and knowing that I am setting an example pushes me to do things I might not do for myself.
I don’t text while driving.
I go to church and read the bible.
I exercise when I don’t feel like it.
I eat vegetables when I don’t feel like it.
I make sure to put money in the can for a good cause.
I don’t (most of the time) curse.
I’m trying really, really hard to not use my phone for unnecessary things when she is present.
It’s because I want to set an example, not simply tell her what to do. I know showing her has a bigger impact.
At Her Fitness we have a “Win of The Week” board and last week I saw one of the best wins!
This made me so proud!
My client, Jess, has a lot of demands on her time and she has been working really, really hard to make changes to her diet.
Not only is Jess eating more vegetables to become healthy, fit and strong…she is setting, yet another, example on how to take care of yourself.
Moms, we have a huge responsibility to our children. One of them is to take care of ourselves.
If we don’t take care of our own health and fitness, your child won’t grow up taking care of hers and his.
Way to go, Jess, for demonstrating to your children how to eat healthy!
What will you change so you are demonstrating healthy behavior and self-care?
